Notably, on January 26, Siddiqur Rahman Nahid was approved as the president, Main Uddin Bhuiyan as the senior vice president and Mehedi Hasan as the general secretary of Narsingdi District Chhatra Dal’s 5-member (partial) committee. Main Uddin Bhuiyan was the general secretary candidate of that committee.
